It will use the interface bound to the IP address of the hostname by default. If
you want to use the otehr interface then specify the name associated with the
inerface on the command-line to "cman_tool join"

in /proc/cluster/config/cman/ there are files you can poke values into. This
must be done beteen loading the cman module and running cman_tool join.

Yes. If you want to use both interfaces then join them using the Linux bonding
driver.
